Krisztina Clark

Krisztina ClarkATS® ATT Graduate, SSCE Instructor, Holistic Fitness Cert.

Founder and artistic director of Czigany World Fusion Dance. Her formal dance training began over 40 years ago with classical ballet and she has been building on that foundation ever since. She has studied many dance styles over the years and combined them all in the formation of Czigany World Fusion Dance.

As a teacher she strives to not only teach a series of steps, but to also show her students the magic that is dance and the freedom it gives them to feel and to express what lies deep within their soul. “Everyone has a beauty inside that is so indescribably brilliant; one that consists of all of their passions, their hopes, their fears, and their dreams. I help my students to get in touch with that part of themselves through dance.”
